Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Take the short, coastal walk into the lovely resort of Bénodet

  • Pick a relaxing treatment at the luxurious health Spa

  • Kids will love to splash about at the indoor or outdoor pool

Looking for a taste of the French seaside? Then Bénodet is the place for you. Truly an outdoor-lover’s resort, its coastal promenade is lined with restaurants, pedalos, trampolines and beach clubs. Settle into La Pointe St Gilles and you’ll soon see why we’ve been coming to this family-run parc for 40 years. You’ll find a small beach just outside the entrance, while the bustling resort of Bénodet is a short, coastal walk away. But it’s the great facilities that helped to earn this parc a prestigious La Clef Verte award. We’re talking about a health spa and beauty centre, five pools, a Jacuzzi and regular evening entertainment. If you fancy exploring the local area, hop on the Tourist Train that will pick you up on parc and take you to the nearby town or beach.

      Little Eurocampers

      Eurocamp toddler holidays

      Bucket? Tick. Spade? Tick. Sand between your toes? Tick. Come along to La Pointe St. Gilles and you’ll soon see (and feel) why this family-run parc has won lots of awards.

      For starters, there’s direct access to a beautiful, sandy beach, that’s got your name written all over it (well, once you’ve made your mark, anyway). Once sandcastle building is over for the day, you can take a 20-minute stroll along a safe and buggy-friendly coastal walk to the resort of Bénodet, where you’ll find lots of shops and restaurants. Or why not hop on the little train to get there instead?

      Back on parc, there’s plenty of fun for full-of-life toddlers, including magic shows and bike hire, if they fancy practising their pedal power. When night-time arrives, take the whole family along to the disco for a little boogie.

      Highlights:

      • Wiggle your toes in the sand with direct beach access

      • Buggy-friendly coastal walk to the resort of Bénodet

      • Hire a bike and enjoy a family bike ride

      Tumble Tots clubsmini stationride stationswim station toddler holidays

      Splash Time

      Splash about at the paddling pool, with a fun waterslide for little ones, all topped off by a mushroom sprinkler.  When it’s time to play in warmer waters, head indoors where you’ll find a heated pool for little ones.

      It had been many years since we holidayed in a caravan, but we still enjoyed the experience. The caravan was ver clean and the courier was helpful and cheerful. The wine and welcome pack were excellent and added to our enjoyment. I felt this part of our holiday was far superior to the Piere Vaccance apartments that we stayed in prior to and subsequent our stay in Benodet.

      A fantastic parc and location with superb children's couriers, just a shame the other couriers were clearly on wind-down and pretty disinterested.

      Visited 5 different parks in Brittany/Normandy in order to get a feel of the area of Brittany and its spectacular coast. Overall we had a good experience and the accommodation and locations assisted in making it enjoyable.

      The couriers didn't come to check that everything was OK. I did ask for a microwave and they said they would bring me one, but it never materialised.
